It is my turn to say hello to everyone here. I am a tea fanatic in my own happy way. My previous college roommates have laughed at my drawers full of teas, so it is awesome to find a crowd of people who are as equally obsessive.

Given the other introductions read on here, I will start with my tea preferences. I enjoy lots of green teas. Currently, I ordered a half dozen little samples at Adagio to find some good ones. I have tried the apricot green, the cherry green, the casa-blanca twist, the sencha overture, the gyokuro, and the green anji so far. I like all of them except for the cherry green. I was hoping it would be like the cherry rose sencha that I had purchased else where, but sadly, it was a bit too sweet. On the other hand, I absolutely adore the casa-blanca twist. Second to my love of green teas is a nice peppermint tea with just a touch of honey. If anyone has any suggestions on which teas to try next, that would be wonderful. I am primarily looking for a good green, every day tea, something that is enjoyable, but not as complex or expensive as the gyokuro.

Any who, greetings to everyone here and good night!

Hi Cinnamonkitty and welcome to our tea community.

You sound like the vast majority of us with your tea drawer(s).

I am a gree tea kinda guy. You are looking for a good everyday green, try Dragon Well...a very approachable and eminently enjoyable green tea.

Enjoy the forum.

Since you seem to appreciate a green with a bit of something extra, I give a nod to citron green.

I also think the green anji and green pekoe teas are fine "every day" teas.

And although it appears to be priced in the same range as the gyokuru, I think sencha premier is super and worth a sample. I have no trouble turning each cup of the stuff into 3 or 4 cups, which scales the price per cup down significantly.

Welcome :D

I agree with the sencha suggestion - a very drinkable green.
